  • KS3 Science iBook

    By sticky_mc
    This is the first publication aimed at KS3 Science that I have seen for the iPad. The functions of the iBook seem to have been put to good use and it is certainly a shiny production. I'm not sure that the presentation of levelled material will suit everyone although if you use the Collins KS3 Course I'm sure it will make more sense. The interactive checking up exercises are varied and ensure that the reader can see what they've remembered / understood. One of the most exciting features for individual pupils to use is the note taker. Words or whole passages can be highlighted with a finger swipe and then personal notes can be attached. With the right content I could easily see this becoming an exercise book replacement (certainly for factual note taking). In summary a good title for individual and independent learners to use in support of a well designed course of practical based lessons. Looking forward to seeing Books 2 and 3 and perhaps other supporting material such as a practical / investigations iBook.
  • Actually rather good

    By Surfing Sid
    This has proved a more useful book than at first thought. The issue is that without the whole series covering all of KS3 and beyond, it isn't really going to be taken seriously as an alternative to the heavy and expensive paper books it aims to replace. Whoever comes up with that option first could make a killing as kids do like these books. Needs an audio glossary for dyslexic and students with reading issues.
  • A fair attempt

    By Banyan Bruce
    Shows potential but not really interactive enough. Information is well presented. Lack of audio support in the glossary disappointing and the lack of feedback on quizzes needs attention. A work in progress but certainly getting there.
